Sunday Lunch
We really care about the food and wine we serve at the Fox and Grapes which is why we won a Catey Menu of the Year award and have earned a Bib Gourmand. You can also find us listed in Harden's, Zagat's, the Michelin Guide, the Time Out Eating & Drinking Guide and the Good Pub Guide amongst others.

Alongside our Chef's Seasonal Dishes we offer a selection of classic English pub food such as fish and chips and that perennial favourite: the Burger. For a real treat, we recommend you try one of our succulent steaks cooked to perfection in our Josper Oven.

Such a treat to return to the Fox & Grapes with friends - one of our favourite venues as we're all coming from different directions and we can combine a short country walk (we now park at Wimbledon Windmill's car park) before and after a scrumptious meal. I enjoyed traditional fish 'n chips followed by a delicious gooseberry cheesecake. One thing we always appreciate with this venue (even outside of Covid-sensitive times) is that there is plenty space between tables and the restaurant is dog-friendly, although we didn't bring a furry friend with us on this occasion.

4 of us took our dog to the Fox and Grapes last night to celebrate my husband’s birthday. They were very welcoming and accommodated our request for a table with some corner space to accommodate our (quote large) dog. The food was delicious, but the service was quite slow, even when a lot of people had gone home. Drinks and starters arrived fast but the main courses took ages to arrive, so those who hadn’t ordered starters were really hungry by then. We had planned to order dessert but they took so long to come back and take our order that we gave up on the end.
The back room of the pub has a very low ceiling and was incredibly hot (to be expected given the weather) but there weren’t any windows open (they do open-we checked) and the back doors were locked shut. We asked if they could be opened but the waiter only opened ours so it didn’t do much. In this hot weather, some air flow would have been appreciated…
We love the Fox and Grapes and we want to support it but slow service is really frustrating..

We had a lovely late lunch. It was quiet but in COVID time it was perfect.
The menu is rather limited but the specials were great.

A very cosy lovely pub tucked away in the commons. We had a wonderful time, staff were very pleasant and served us in a very friendly manner. The vibe inside was simply great especially with the football. All distance organised for Covid so very safe. Nothing was too much for the staff ,, always helpful. The food was amazing and very delicious. We loved it and will be returning many times Thsnk you for a pleasant evening. We found a great pub .

Absolutely perfect Sunday lunch. Crispy pork crackling, light and fluffy Yorkshire puds and just the right amount of fresh veg to fill but not overstuff. Service was quick and friendly, the waitress even brought a bowl of water for our dogs without being asked. Great example of a good value and high standard pub. Highly recommended.

I haven’t visited the Fox & Grapes for a while and left with mixed feelings. Food was fabulous, and the staff were attentive, although not necessarily switched on. On arrival it took several attempts to identify ourselves… the girl on front desk was obviously confused by the fact that the booking was in my name (female) yet my son (male) checked us in. After suggesting various other bookings under male names, my son succeeded in pointing to my booking and we were led to our table. Perhaps it was the fact that the men’s finals was on , but the waiting staff seemed distracted. I ordered wine (as one does), but after watching the bar staff polish numerous glasses and me half way through my meal, I realised a reminder was in order before I actually finished the food. So … mixed feelings especially given the 12.5% service charge added to the bill.

Great tasting food, slight confusion about the order but was quickly resolved. Would be good to have a wider range of soft drinks for non drinkers but this would be a bonus. An excellent venue for a pleasant meal oit

The Fox & Grapes is one of Wimbledon's best pubs with excellent food and selection of alcoholic and non alcoholic beers and lagers. It has great character and very friendly service. It is just a little way from the centre of the Village and warrants the delightful walk as a prelude to a great experience.

We all had a really nice meal. The food never disappoints at this wonderful pub. I really wanted a vegge roast which they don't offer but they kindly substituted the meat for grilled aubergine and I must say the food tasted even better than it looked!!
There was a big combination of dishes for all of us and everyone was very happy.
Desserts are delicious!!

We were a party of 6 and had a room to ourselves so felt very socially distanced and safe. They kindly turned the speakers off as several of our party had hearing issues. The food was delicious and the service was very attentive. We will certainly go again.

We love eating at the Fox & Grapes. It always feels special. The menu is interesting (there are usually specials) and the food is delicious. The staff - especially Girly - take extra care to make sure you are happy with everything. She involved all the customers in singing happy birthday to my husband! They go the extra mile to make sure that you have an excellent experience.

Lovely as always! Can't fault the service or ambience now that life has come back a little. Best roast by far. Only negative.. the roasties.. but we are yet to find a pub that perfects a Sunday roast potatoe! It's a hard task with table turnover. That said.. keep it up!

Tables felt on top of each other and the space lacked atmosphere with no music and staff on the sidelines waiting/watching. Food was good but unfortunately the set up and atmosphere let it down and we would be reluctant to return on that basis.

Love the Fox and Grapes, food was delicious. Our table wasn't ready when we arrived but staff were apologetic and made sure we had a drink. When we were seated, it took a while to be given our menus but after that hiccup, staff were very attentive. Recommend.

Thought the food a wee bit pricy this time for the amount on the plate, wouldn't fill a hungry young person ! Would have been happy with a small dish of new potatoes and green veg complimentary ,between two, and veg isn't too expensive ?
' We do like the pub and have been coming there for years, I drive down from the Midlands and my family are local

Lovely atmosphere and great service. The staff made us feel that they wanted to serve us, which was great! The food was excellent, as was the wine. The menu isn’t extensive but it was still hard to choose as everything sounded (and then tasted) fabulous. Highly recommended!
